Local Medical Issues
There are numerous local issues that can impact your pet's health, and that require your attention over the entire year. For example, there is heartworm disease, which can affect both cats and dogs. It is transmitted by mosquitoes, which thrive in our region, and is therefore a serious cause for concern. The winter temperatures do not get cold enough here to kill mosquito eggs, making heartworm disease a year-round risk.
Likewise with the potential for flea and tick infestation, or intestinal parasites, each of which poses a problem in any season.
Finally, contrary to what you would expect, allergies are a year-round issue. Many pets suffer from skin and ear allergies. Signs include scratching, redness in the ears and scaly skin.
We would be happy to address any of your concerns regarding these conditions.
